I tend to agree with W.S. Gilbert, "Let the punishment fit the crime." What is fitting for a killer? It is rather a medieval practice to "send him to God" for judgment. the judgment has been made, so now how about a little punishment? Well, another forward step for civilization. Killing is still murder, even if the state does it. There are exceptions in wartime, but then again, there shouldn't be wars.TRENTON, N.J. —
Gov. Jon S. Corzine signed into law Monday a measure that abolishes the death penalty, making New Jersey the first state in more than four decades to reject capital punishment.
The bill, approved last week by the state's Assembly and Senate, replaces the death sentence with life in prison without parole.
Let's here what you guys have to say.
Side note: I hope this discussion isn't shut down as a result of flaming. It won't be if we can remember to refer to the topic, and not each other.
